4 stars What an amazing underrated gem this Mi Kubesi is, a suprisingly unique blend of metallic melodic ideas, jazzy instrumentation and native Turkish influences. The majority of the album is clean and instrumental with a few distorted metal moments and for the most part it's actually surprisingly psychedelic which is an amazing feat which few metal oriented acts have ever pulled off well.

My favourite song is the opener 'Crying game' which is the perfect encapsulation of what is good about this band and this album and is one of the faster more upbeat and complicated songs of the album. Yollar comes in a close second for me with both some great heavy moments and some brooding almost meditative middle eastern passages. Unfortunately the album does wax and wane a bit in terms of intensity and it does get a tad boring in places as it is such a long album clocking in at around 73 minutes but there are a lot of great songs and a lot great music on the whole.

There is some amazing technical drumming here and it interplays well with the guitars which are the focal point of the album. The guitar tone is quite reverberant and is primarily responsible for contributing to the psychedelic and spacey textures of this album full credit must be given to Cem and Tolga it's one thing to play metallic type riffs loud and distorted but to play technical metallic riffs clean and then to add dynamics into the equation is quite the feat, I thoroughly enjoy the middle eastern influenced riffs, there is careful attention to melody that is evident all throughout this album.

Overall NEKROPSI's debut album Mi Kubesi is a fantastic piece of music highly recommended to anyone into darker instrumental prog or even metal.
